Burnley take on Queens Park Rangers with both teams in desperate need of points in their fight against relegation. Burnley have shown some real fighting spirit in the last three weeks coming from behind to earn draws at Manchester City, Newcastle United and Tottenham. While many believe that Burnley are destined for relegation I for one do not. I believe the return to fitness of Sam Vokes is going to be huge for the clarets and with Ings and Barnes also contributing along with the solid play of George Boyd this Burnley team can stay in the Premier League. But and this is a big but, they must start winning more games. Tomorrow against QPR looks a great chance to get three points considering that QPR have lost every away game they have played this year.
Harry Redknapp has to be concerned about his team after they were embarressed by league one side Sheffield United in the FA Cup last weekend, QPR simply must start picking up points on the road as their home form alone is not going to be enough to save them. The only element of this season that has been a bright spot is Charlie Austin who has netted twelve goals for the R's and is the main reason that they are not in more trouble than they are already. Having watched QPR against Arsenal and in a few matches since I think that Redknapp needs to turn to Hoilett and some of his unused substitutes to try to salvage the situation as at the moment I dont see how QPR are going to turn things around unless they invest heavily in the transfer market this month.
I am taking Burnley to get the win here. I have been impressed with the Clarets in recent weeks and I am going to take them here to get a win which could prove huge come the end of the season.
